Name: Charlene Seini
Occupation: Business Analyst and part time Beauty Blogger
- "To be successful in my career as a Business Analyst.
- To travel more.
- To be happy and content with what I do."
What is success? "Success is something that changes much the same as I do through life. I continually set myself goals and work towards them. So success is something that is continually changing and evolving along with me. I feel I have succeeded when I know I have done something to the best of my abilities and achieved my goals. To me it is all about being happy with the way in which I achieved my goals. If I knew I could have done more or done better - I don't feel I have succeeded."
What success have you already achieved? "Professionally, I am still growing within my career path. When I started out at my career it was about career progression, finishing my part time studies and being able to live comfortably. I am succeeding in my goals for growth, development and career progression. More recently I presented at the BASSA conference which is a big accomplishment for me in my profession. I think the biggest success I have achieved is finding a job that I am good at and enjoy doing.
Blogging wise, I think the main thing I wanted to achieve was balance between blogging, working and enjoying my spare time. This is only something that I have recently achieved. In the first year of blogging I spent almost all my free time blogging. Doing that while working and studying part time was really hard on me and I felt utterly exhausted. I think my biggest achievement with blogging is creating a good following, working with great brands and overcoming insecurities I had."
What success do you want to achieve? "I want to become internationally certified which is not an easy undertaking because you have to have a certain number of years of experience coupled with many other qualifying criteria - and that is to just gain access to writing the certification exam. But I am actively working towards it and slowly getting there."
Good luck on your road to success and on being internationally certified Charlene...
Peace. Happiness. Success.
